Author´s Talk: Kevin J. McNamara

Mr. McNamara will introduce his comprehensive account of the highly dramatic events that led to the founding of Czecho-Slovakia in 1918.

 

 

The story involves an ad hoc army of ex-POWs that inadvertently seized all of Siberia, global espionage, high-stakes diplomacy, and America’s own Czechs and Slovaks, who raised funds and pressured President Woodrow Wilson to grant their peoples independence.
